Activating the cowl you spider climb your way onto the underside of the bridge, giving you the idea that it would have given the creator of this puzzle a good chuckle, in fact had anyone seen you they would have laughed at the notion of a spider-dwarf, but you make it work. You feel the air of the liquid as you briskly move above it, realizing that it is not actually water, but it doesnt matter because right now you are able to bypass its trappings.
Reaching the end you climb around and now stand on the other side of the danger bridge, you have noticed that the lever has fallen to one side, causing the guillotines to stop and the thrumming sound to be pervading the holes in the wall. At your feet is the gear you need to take back with you, the path seems open, but just how clear.
Mather grabs the gear, then raises his shield to cast a shadow over himself, shadow-stepping back into the hallway from whence he came.
Seer of Void:
Free Action – Once per encounter, teleport from an area of less than normal light to another area of less than normal light that you can see. Both areas must be large enough to cover your body easily.
You shadow step into the safety of the odd corridor. As you do, you wonder if the creators of the puzzle would have been angered by how you solved it of elated by your magical prowess.
With gear in hand, you enter the central room once more to find all of its residents eager with anticipation. "The gear?! you have it yes?! Come! place it and finally give me that orb!" the caged man says. As you look at him you see a crazed and burning desire rising, you dont know what he is planning, nor do you know the nature of this place, perhaps you should take a moment to consider the situation. As if feeding on the thought, or perhaps it was the cause of it, the furthest door of the room suddenly erupts in flame.
Before you all is a being made of pure fire, its form flickering with energy yet you realize your initial recoil was pointless as you notice there is no heat. It doesnt take you long to realize that this was an image, and one of the creature that fought you in the caverns before. "Stranger, do not activate the chamber, the trial is tainted and it will cause much instability if you proceed, I cannot stop you but I must warn you, do NOT proceed" it says with a weary and stern voice". It would appear that you are at the crux of a decision, choose wisely.
"If it is tainted, it can be cleansed. Tell me; what is the source of this taint, and where can I find it?"
"You hold the taint in your hand child!" the fiery image exclaimed with ill-hidden anger, "The core was stolen and brought here, it was not won in the trail and thus has been touched by ill hearts. Bring the core back and let it be restored in its rightful place!" he finished with a defiance for more questions.
"Ignore him!" said the caged king, "He seeks to keep what is rightfully ours! The core belongs to my people, we wish to restore our maker and that is the key to his bindings, please, give me the core!" he tensely said and clasped the bars of the gate tighter.
"If the core has been tainted by unrightful acquisition, then no good would come from using it in its current state. I will take the core back where it belongs and reclaim it through the proper trial. I will restore the core to its rightful state, and then bring it back here to finish this."
Mather turns to the caged king.
"Do not presume you can deny this."
He then turns to the small mage.
"You know this is not right. Take me to where you acquired the core, so that I may restore the proper order of things."
Tension increases as two opposing forces try to vie for your focus. Turning to the little mage, you try to reason with her but notice hints of hesitation. Seeing how all of this will play out, the Goblin King takes matters into his own hands, "Enough! I didnt want to force this but it seems like I have no choice, even if I cannot see his Eminence destroy my enemies, my people will prosper!" He yelled and cast a wicked spell towards the arcane youth.
Tendrilous words worm their way into her mind and you see her eyes dim from consciousness. Coiling his hand, the little mage approaches with lightning speed and passes the object to her master a mere moment before the spell ends. Realizing what was about to happen she turns to you with tears, meanwhile, the fire spirit lets out a primal yell, "Fool! You hath wrought destruction upon self and kith, take thine punishment!" it finished before vanishing with a plume of fire.
With the object of his desire in his possession, the Goblin King rushes to the alter in the middle of the chamber and begins to start casting some form of ritual. The iron gate still stands in between you two, you could either confront what was to come or you could take the goblin mage and run.

The staff weapons did kill quite well except when plot armor became involved. They had such terrible accuracy because they were just a staff with no sights or aiming devices. The weapon part of the staff was good, just in a crappy package. Hence why building more conventional gun versions of a staff weapon would negate any disadvantages it has.
The Intar they used for training, yes, but it had other applications same as the Zat guns. Non-lethal stun weapons would be great for prisoner handling both in the Stargate program and the real world.
The only time they used Kull armor was when Jacob played dress up as one and when Aeryn Sun first showed up and Daniel did his Hans Olo thing.
The healing devices from the handheld Gould one (which to be fair can only be used by former hosts) to the sarcophagus were barely used at all. The handheld healing device was used all of once on Cronus and they never used any sarcophaguses. Yes there are side effects to the sarcophagus but it literally brings people back from the dead. Unless its being used on Harry Kim most people aren't going to be using it enough to get the bad side effects.
Stargate had the same problem as Star Trek where they'd introduce amazing technology and then toss it in some bin somewhere because it would alter the story too much, they didn't think of the ramifications when introducing the tech. The reason they never used the Kull armor and healing tech is because it would remove tension if you have invincible heroes that can be brought back to life if they somehow die.
No, a bullet cartridge even from a p90 was a lot more effective than whatever that staff was shooting. That was clearly shown.
I think your terminology is wrong, a bullet is part of a cartridge but thats beside the point.
The P90 was more effective not because of what it was shooting (though it was more effective then the MP5 because of that) but because of how its built. As TheMather said, in the show they describe the difference. The staff is a big flashy intimidation weapon while the P90 and most Tauri weapons are built for function.
They are both weapons for war but different types of war. The staff is essentially like a space Musket, loud and inaccurate and used for Napoleonic style or mass formations with volley shooting. The P90 and other Tauri weapons are built for modern combat, quick accurate engagements.
The staff excels at going into combat against other enemies using similar tactics and against primitives. Not so good against human soldiers who have spent centuries kicking the crap out of each other and learning new and exciting ways of doing so. Its not just the weapons that makes us kick Jaffa ass, its the tactics. Jaffa vs Japanese Banzai charges with relatively modern weapons, Jaffa are probably going to win. Its essentially a numbers game and Jaffa always have more.
We win because we don't engage in standard Jaffa style battles, we win because we fight more like guerillas, like soldiers rather then warriors.
It’s clearly shown that bullet propelled by a 5.45 round ibliterated the object and the staff failing.
If you are talking about the P90 it is 5.7, 5.45 is the round commonly used in the AK-74. And during the P90 vs Staff weapon challenge the P90 destroys the target when she dumps dozens of rounds into it while the staff seemed to be firing low power rapid fire blasts. The staff is apparently variable yield, sometime blowing massive fist sized holes into stuff with explosive force and sometimes fairly wimpy but firing faster.
Also seeing the P90 being fired in Youtube videos and the like I highly doubt it would do that to a log. The P90 is an impressive weapon but not known for its power.
Thanks for and just wow, only 5.7 and the inconsistency of the staff unbelievable.
- Yup, she's clearly based on the paladin archetype.
- Correction, she's a support/tank hybrid. Her primary weapon…
hows the healing work though, is it like ana where u have to hit ur teammates with flail to heal them? or is it a skill?
It's also a skill. She passively heals people around her when she deals damage
actually she applies a heal-over-time that lasts 5 seconds and can be refreshed every 1.5 (if you attack again after 1.5 second and they are still in line of sight)
and she also has a targeted heal on a single person with, I think, 6 second cooldown.
It's an AoE passive that kicks in whenever the flail deals damage to an enemy.
So kinda like the pally from Diablo 2, a mix between hammerdin and zealot. Dope
Yup, she's clearly based on the paladin archetype.
- Boy do I have a surprise for you... The only reason…
If Momo was a bit more Serious
The overall basic schematics are easy to find, but there's a lot of subtle intricacies that are still government secrets that are the real key for getting a nuke to work properly. Chemical composition of the various tampers, additives to the polystyrene foam casing to create a stable plasma field, specific electronic timing sequences, precise dimensions and weight of the nuclear material, etc.
I mean I still feel like there's still a bit of a leap between diagrams and actually understanding and being able to generate all the parts. I mean just look at the section on the link you posted called, "Public knowledge concerning nuclear weapon design" general concepts are public knowledge but specifics are still classified.
But yea that does seem more feasible then
